I graduated from Nanzan University, Faculty of Economics, Department of Economics, and hold a B.A. in Economics. I spent 11 years working in the UK for Miyuki Keori Co., Ltd. After roles in the Management Information Department and other areas, I became the company’s managing director. I then served as managing director at the Japanese subsidiary of the French high-class clothing fabric brand Dormeuil before taking up my current post. I specialize in global-level business development for the textile industry. I have also held roles such as Chair of the Aichi Textile Industry Conference and Chair of the Boards of Nagoya Woolen Textile Industry Association and the Men’s Fashion Unity.
